The following health alert is from the FDA and the CFIA on june 6, 2011.

Simply Thick, LLC is announcing a voluntary recall of its SimplyThick® thickening gel products manufactured at a food processing plant located in Stone Mountain, Georgia since June 1, 2009. This plant is currently owned and operated by Thermo Pac, LLC. This voluntary recall is limited to only those products manufactured at the Stone Mountain, Georgia plant. Thermo Pac, LLC failed to file with the FDA a scheduled process designed to ensure that vegetative cells (harmful bacteria) of possible public health significance are destroyed during the manufacturing process.
Products affected are 15 g, 30 g, 120 g and 240 g pouches.

  • All 15 g pouches are affected
  • All 30 g pouches are affected
  • Some 120 g pouches – identified as those with a “TP” in the lot code stamped into the edge of the packet.
